The Benefits of EWD Custom Doors

Exclusive Wood Doors (EWD) follows a guiding principle that all their exterior doors are built solidly, producing lasting value due to exceptional craftsmanship. All EWD wood products are made from solid wood with doors crafted in authentic stile and rail construction. Each piece is created individually with alternating grain patterns to ensure balance and stability for every entryway.

Exclusive Wood Doors offers exceptional quality from hinges to locks. As one of our top-quality vendors, EWD provides an endless variety of doors that will withstand the test of time and Florida’s tropical conditions.  

Offering two hinge types: a butt hinge and concealed adjustable hinge, EWD hinges are available in different sizes for different weight capacities, materials, and finishes to complement the architectural style of any home.

EWD features an exclusive award-winning Simonswerk Tectus concealed adjustable hinge, which is one of many innovative hardware options. It is not only aesthetically pleasing due to its invisibility but also adjustable in the x, y, and z-axis. EWD is one of the only manufacturers with hurricane-impact-approved concealed adjustable hinges.

Offering a variety of lock options to meet your home’s aesthetic and security requirements, EWD aligns the design with the function of your door. Lock types include single deadbolt locks with roller catches, tubular locks, mortise locks, lever-activated multipoint locks, and key-activated multipoint locks. While you can find contemporary and traditional handles for all lock types, each corresponds to a function and architectural style.

EWD’s swinging front door has exceeded Florida’s most rigorous hurricane impact testing standards for air, water, and structural performance, with design pressure ratings compliant with High-Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) requirements.


Exclusive Wood Doors believes that innovation drives their front-door company forward, which is why you will never see them settle. EWD believes that its leadership is defined by its commitment to engineering as we command performance from all product categories. As a leading wood door manufacturer, EWD stands by its products and constantly strives to improve and redefine residential entry doors.
